Re: Proof, yet again, that there is no such thing as computer security
Security is not a binary proposition...it's more analog. That said, any organization can be susceptible to a high capability threat actor. Despite this being the worst theft of cyberweapons (any tool can be weaponized) since the 2016 Shadowbrokers hitjob on the NSA, this incident will in my estimate force the evolution of countermeasures.

Re: Proof, yet again, that there is no such thing as computer security
Interesting, this is almost laughable. Accenture Government, Army, Airforce, Marriott, NSA and major government installations have allowed hacks to take place across the globe (Airforce - England, Accenture - China, Marriott - ???, NSA - Shadow Brokers and Ed. Snowden, FireEye - Russia, Army - ???, Personnel Division/State Dept - China Red Team, CapitalOne - Paige Thompson)

But one thing about a few of these attacks, specific attacks were identified as an inside attack. I do believe this was the same because they are a reputable securty company so this is surprising to hear.

Anyway, the investigation and unveiling the issue will soon begin.

Proof, yet again, that there is no such thing as computer security
After yaars of seeing companies with the best network security technologies in the world professionally deployed, operated and maintained, we witness, yet again, that there is no such thing as computer security. Only other targets being breached before they get around to you.

Especially troubling because we de-industrialized our economy in favor of the information economy, and now we know that IP can easily be stolen by foreign powers who want it badly enough. So, what really matters in the 21st century is who has the nimble industrial capability and financial capital to produce, market and improve whatever is successfully stolen from the company that did the hard work of inventing it.

The knowledge economy is no longer proprietary. Where does it leave us in the decades to come?
